PMC is already a recycled material, but who knew we could recycle it one more time. Like many jewelers and metalsmiths, I have a little bowl of mismatched silver “doo-dads” that are too pretty to melt down, but not large enough to be a focal piece for a necklace. I’ve decided to recycle these pieces into charm necklaces. After seeing all the beautiful creations that came out of the recent PMC convention, I decided not to create any new pieces until I made significant headway into the bowl of small silver, bronze, and copper pieces I’ve accumulated over the years. Some will be turned into charm bracelets, and others into necklaces or earrings. Here are a few pics of todays recycled works.
